During a bold robbery at Kenilworth Centre this morning, unidentified suspects made off with jewellery, cellphones and an undisclosed amount of cash.

As reported by News24, four individuals entered a Foschini store, armed with guns and hammers. Using the hammers to break into the display, they accessed cellphones.

“Five armed suspects broke display cabinets in a clothing store and got away with an undisclosed number of cellphones. No shots were fired and no one has been injured,” Michelle Britton, who forms part of the centre’s management, said.

“This morning at around 11:10, armed suspects held the staff of a clothing store in a Kenilworth mall at gunpoint and fled with jewellery, cellular telephones and cash,” South African Police Services (SAPS) spokesperson AndrĂ© Traut said in a statement. “They fled with a silver Chevrolet SUV with false number plates and are yet to be arrested.”
